Hubby and I have been meaning to tour the brewery for a while and just haven't gotten around to going. So when we were passing through the city we stopped by and loved every minute. We chose the 6 pack and tour option($15 each)and had a fun, upbeat and informative tour guide, Francis. He made everyone laugh and went above... More

We are adults in our 40's, not big beer drinkers, attracted to this tour because of the interesting historic building. But, the whole tour is a lot of fun, the guide was very informative and we enjoyed it much more than we expected.

Our guide was very entertaining! A gift of a glass or opener is included with admission. Worth the $10 for sure!

This is like a non commercial family run business that takes you on a tour of their factory. It is fun and interesting. While drinking beer you will take a hosted tour around a high level walkway to see all the processes of beer making and bottle washing. All this for $10 or $15 which includes a six pack to... More

We had been told to check out the Steam Whistle tour by friends and I'm certainly glad we did! For the great price of $10 not only do you get a 30minute tour of the factory but also 2x small glasses of beer (one while you wait at the beginning and one to chill and drink when the tour is... More

Arriving at the historic site was full of seeing Toronto's activity locations come alive as well as the locomotive museum pieces and historic buildings as a monument to the past all placed around the "round house" or change station from Toronto's past. The staff were friendly and helpful. Offering our small group of women samples while we waited in the... More
